    Awww, thanks guys. I'm still not sure why I was having such a hard time posting pics though. :(

    Oooh, I saw the sweater guard last night, but now it's gone! It was cool though -- very sparkly! How does it work? Does it actually guard your sweaters?

    I'm really not sure what's going on. I'm posting pics the way I normally do and I've never had a problem before. I don't know what else to do. I even posted them on a different site.

    Sweater Guards are 'mini necklaces' with clips on the ends that keep a sweater pulled closed at the neck while the wearer has it on without having to button it.

    This is one I bought from Rubylane.com

    Did you start your classes?? I am starting private lessons, I hope, this week. I opted for the private class because the woman who teaches them is willing to lead me through the making of a complete dress or two. The group classes that I found around my way give you patterns, and you never really get the one on one attention that I know my clumsy fingers are gonna need!
    I'm interested in knowing how you are doing with it. I'm a little nervous that I just won't get it all.

    Daisy, you'll be fine. Once you've made a thing or two, you'll be totally addicted. Make room for all the fabric, vintage and other wise you'll be accumulating.

    How I spent my weekend. (ruffling endless yards of fabric) It still needs finishing touches, and the bodice isn't fitted yet, but it's probably 80% done. Not very 40's I'm afraid. . .but the 19th C was my first love.

    Vanessa, that is lovely. Very pretty. Is that beading?

    WOW Vanessa, that came out incredibly! It is amazing. Will you be bringing it to the Queen Mary, I'd enjoy seeing it in person. I just love that era of clothing. Looking forward to seeing the rest of it.

    Thank you. I was in full crunch-sewing mode, but I'm very pleased with how it's turning out.

    Rosie - it's not beading, but a tassled trim. There will be beading once it's complete though.

    Daisy - I'd love to bring it to the QM, but it's a little too early time-wise to be appropriate. I'd look sorely out of place when everyone else is strolling in their slim, non-corseted, non-petticoated, non-bustled evening gowns. (And it's also a hell of a lot to pack. :D )

    Yes...but you would confuse the poor ship....She wasn't even a gleam in the shipbuilders eyes til 1926 and not really built in earnest until 1934.

    Have mercy on her!
